  • Cased Caddis Nymph

    Being im on a epoxy kick and seeing alot of caddis around where im fishing, I wanted to see what a epoxy cased caddis would look like and try to tie a fly that closely imitates a cased caddis.

        You should play around with some epoxy back golden stones. Also, try playing around with latex (latex gloves) for the body. Use a green underbody and wrap the cut latex over it and use mono or copper wiring for the segmentation-it's sick. When I do epoxy caddis emergers, I'll get sand, twigs etc. and epoxy them to the casing. I then use 10-12 maxima for the legs. Tie the legs in place, get a hot pin or needle and touch it to the center of the leg. The leg bends to a 45 degree angle and looks sweet.

                I like the cast, now make the bug look a little more buggy and I think you'll have a real winner
                I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

                  Agreed... Just adding some peacock herl will help quite a bit I think.

                  Regardless, another great fly from 900...

                      Taking your ideas into consideration i came up with this. extended body made from antron yarn then added zap-a-gap to stiffin up, obviously epoxy with sand and rocks, body is clear tan vinyl rib and legs are ostrich herl.

                        Justin,

                        I tried to tie a realistic cased caddis with sand and everything a couple of years ago. I hate to admit it, but they never fished well.

                          spun rubber for the case and a tungsten bead (no I didn't tie it but I like the looks of it)
                          I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

                            Cool idea with the spun rubber... I like it.

                              I have tied a lot of cased caddis. Some of the more simple patterns sometimes fish better.
                              These are a lot more fun to tie!
                              Good looking flies though dude!
                              Check out this company in europe that sells a lot of cool bug materials.
